Thanks guys. We are overwhelmed by the warm welcome of the California tiki people. Besides being hard work with several interviews everyday, this trip is really fun and exciting. It is the people that make it so interesting and heartwarming. Thank you. Right now we are in San Francisco to meet Otto.

It looks like this DVD will really be the "Who is Who of Tiki". (including exclusive interviews with legends from the early century like velvet painter Eric Askew, Moorea-based Bali-Hai-Boy Muck, tikilover and bar owner Annette (La Mariana, Honolulu) and of course "Sir" Martin Denny. All of these tiki gems are over 80! and have so much to tell. This is really exciting.

Please help to let the "TIKI TELEGRAMM" idea blossom! See topic in the Creating Tiki Section. More Later, Jochen and Tanja.

sounds like a coool movie! not sure if you're gonna get the chance but if you happen to pass thru the central coast/santa barbara area , there's a killer little place called the Santa Barbara Surf Museum that's been here for years and the guy who runs it has a very cool vintage surf/tiki memorabillia collection. just thought I'd throw that out there if you didn'already know about it....can't wait to see the film!!

I don't think any legitimate tiki documentary would be complete without a stop at the Lagoon Room.

Man, sounds like a great way to write off a hell of a trip on your taxes as a business expense! I love it!

We are finally back home in Munich. Wow what w trip. 101 days on the road, meeting 101 wonderful people. Sofar we shot 60 hours of interviews. I am scarred of editing it! Returning to the worst German summer ever makes us yearn for more exotic places again. The good thing is that we will be soon on the road again for more "Armchair Travelling". Additional shooting will bring us to the newly opened Tiki-Bar in Berlin, the TabooTiki (Greetings to the kaiserstyles) where we will also film an interview with Book of Tiki Cover Artist Moritz R, than we will travel to Paris to visit our fellow-polynesian travellers and Aranui survivors, the Viranis who will hopefully introduce us to the Ukulele Club of Paris. In August we hope to meet I Belli di Waikiki in Italy and re-meet them in September at the Hukilau where we will finish the shooting for the Tiki-DVD. Soon more update. Remember you can be part of the DVD with your personal Tiki Telegramm.

Hi J&T,
happy to hear you're back. Can't wait to see some of that footage. Who says we're open? A good Rum needs its time, too!!! Opening date of the Tabou Tiki Room is July 20th (and we didn't even start decorating the 2nd room). We hope both of you come up pretty soon.
ciao, A & S

We just returned from Paris, shooting interviews with tattoo artist Sunny Buick (www.sunnybuick.com), who tattooed a beautiful tiki design on Viranis chest, and Cyril LeFebvre, founding member of the Ukulele Club de Paris (http://www.ukuleleclubdeparis.com). To our surprise the streets of Paris are full of tiki street art by a mysterious artist that we had the pleasure to meet but werent allowed to film for his safety.

This is Sunny tattooing Virani


And this the final result still really fresh and with lots of cream on it.


Before we were in Senegalia, Italy to film at the legendary Summer Jamboree, where we had the pleasure to interview Italy's first Hawaiian Band: I Belli di Waikiki, who will perform at this years hukilau!

Some images





We will finish shooting right after the Hukilau and focus on the intensive editing. If you would like to be part of the project and help, please write us. The Tiki Telegram section still needs your support. (check out our topic under creating tiki)

All I can say is wow! I know I wish you did not have to edit it much that somehow you could leave it pretty much as is and show all the footage you have taped. I look forward to meeting you at Hukilau.

I can't wait to get this DVD. It sounds like you have enough footage for more than one (The Return of the Armchair Tiki, Revenge of the Armchair Tiki...).

Oh, yes. Squeezing 100 hours of footage on a 3 hour DVD, also squeezes tears out of my eyes!
